Negative Calorie Diet Food

By: Patou

In reality, there is no such thing as a negative calorie food because all foods contain calories. According to the theory, negative-calorie foods are foods which require more calories to digest than the calories the foods actually contain.

This arises because calories from these foods much harder for the body to breakdown and process. In other words, it takes more effort for the body to burn these foods than the food's calorie count. This gives such foods a tremendous natural fat-burning advantage.
For instance a piece of cake consisting of 400 calories may require only 130 calories to be digested by our body, resulting in a net gain of 270 calories which will be added to calorie count for the day. However, if you ingested a negative calorie food has a calorie intake of 200 calories, yet it requires 250 calories to digest then you would be burning 50 more calories than you ingested.

This theory is flawed it assumes that you have the time to select foods that have negative calorie content and that you will be able to follow approach for the rest of your life- which is not practical or sound. Your body needs nutrients, and these negative calorie foods usually contain lots of fiber but very little protein, fats
and essential nutrients needed by the body.

Additionally, to see any visible effects, you will need to consume a lot of negative calorie foods, seeing that a pound of fat is 3500 calories; you will need to eat lots of negative calorie foods just to lose one pound. It is just not practical.

Next, there is no mention of exercise, yet it must be noted that a high intensity body-building workout combined with a high intensity cardio program could have you burn 700 calories in an hour. This is faster than eating negative calorie foods, plus it will add tone and muscle to your body. The best way to incorporate this negative calorie diet theory to your workout or diet program is to use a high protein / high negative calorie diet.

Below you will find a list of calorie foods-that you can use yourself to lose weight:
